SKOKIE, IL – Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, is now shipping the StudioComm System with Dante® Support, consisting of the Model 792 Central Controller and the Model 793 Control Console. With the variety of audio formats and channel counts used in modern production workflows, audio personnel have a heightened need for specialized source selection and level control equipment. Users can utilize the latest StudioComm System to conveniently monitor high-channel-count Dante digital and analog audio sources while maintaining excellent audio quality.
“While Dante has found wide acceptance in professional applications, analog signals continue to play an important role in audio workflows,” says Gordon Kapes, President of Studio Technologies. “That fact, combined with the range of audio formats, can make monitoring a challenge. We’re excited to offer our customers a high-performance yet easy-to-use solution with our newest StudioComm System.”
The StudioComm System incorporates an internal 16-channel architecture, providing direct support for a range of surround audio applications. Audio level control and processing is performed in 32-bit programmable logic, which helps to ensure that excellent audio quality is maintained. With Dante digital and analog audio inputs and outputs and an extensive set of operating resources, the system can be seamlessly integrated into virtually any contemporary facility.
The Model 793 serves as the system’s “command center.” The unit is designed to reside at a user’s location for quick access to all monitoring functions and a direct view of status information. The Model 792 contains all the circuitry required to support the Dante digital and analog audio input and output signals. The one-rack-space unit links with the Model 793 using a 9-conductor D-subminiature cable. An integral web server allows fast and flexible configuration of the unit’s Ethernet networking, Dante, and analog audio performance. This allows the system’s performance to be optimized to meet the needs of many specific applications.
